how many floors does the building have coz i think wifi can only cover one floor coz its signals cant pass thorugh the roof

You might also want to consider the fact that everybody does not have a laptop, and a desktop would require a wireless card or dongle. That might be a hindrance in wireless adoption.

Well Taking Bandwidth from Any DSL Supplier like PTCL , Micronet & spreading it by wireless. Wifi Card is under 1k nowadays! even if i have to install one Transmitter per Floor. It seems Ok. I think many peoples have tried this in past. Just want to check out if it would be feasible?

How much do u think average person would like to pay ?

Around 1k / Month ?

no offense but 1000 per month is a lil too much for that price ppl can get dsl

u want to price urself lower than the competition so that ppl are attracted towards ur product or in this case ur isp


#10

500 rs per month will attract customers


#11

btw how much speed are u gona offer?


#12

It can be feasible in apartments in posh areas like multistory flats in F-10 etc.

But cost of setting up wireless infrastructure would be higher than providing a cable node to each user/apartment.

I don't think normal APs (Rs. 2000 to 3000/-) will work here.


#13

man u gonna need atlest one access point per floor and then per sector of the appartment

the cost of the eqquipment and then the cost u will pay for your main connection

then the users would have 2 buy the wifi card for dekstops and if they are usin laptops and dont have it onboard so theyll hav 2 but wifi pcmia cards

man i dont think thatll would be feasible......... not 2 you and niether for your customers.......

unless they ur users extreamly rich and if they use 1000 rupee bills as tissue papers :lol:

Well thats What Exactly, I was asking. I will make a feasibility of the Cable Stuff.. CAT6 Cables are expensive too & CAT5/4 i dont want to use.

500 seems to be perfect but would need to conduct what peoples are willing to pay!


#15

why not cat5?
